Utahn dies following collapse at Park City Mountain Resort
A 67-year-old man from Utah died Saturday after suffering from a medical condition while skiing at Park City Mountain Resort.
At around 1 p.m., the man reportedly collapsed near the base of Tombstone, according to the Summit County Sheriff’s Office. His name has not yet been released.
The victim was transported to the White Pine Canyon area where Park City Mountain Resort ski patrol administered life support before transferring him to the University of Utah Hospital, in Salt Lake City, by AirMed. He died at the hospital.
Park City Mountain Resort extended their "deepest sympathy and support to the family and friends of the man" in a press release.
It is the second skier death to occur in the last week.
A Wanship man died in an avalanche Sunday, Jan. 31, in an area known as Shale Shot near Murdock Peak, outside of the resort’s boundaries. His body was recovered two days later buried under several feet of snow.
